5 minutes 2 dream © 2008 Siuan McGahan

Another day comes to a close 
The way it always goes. 
All the thoughts left in my head 
The words unsaid

Here I face another night 
Going down without a fight 
And I think only heaven knows 
Where did the hours go?

5 minutes please to dream 
5 minutes of my own 
5 minutes just to breathe 
5 minutes all alone

I dream of having time 
Time to more than dream 
Where the hours are all mine 
And the moments in between

I’m vying with bound hands 
Like walking through quicksand 
My thoughts preoccupied 
No daydreaming tonight

5 minutes please to dream 
5 minutes of my own 
5 minutes just to breathe 
5 minutes all alone

The world I used to know, 
Myself and my ego 
With time on our side 
It passed me by
